    Adorabear reacted to NowItsAngeTime in KonoSora / IMHHW ReTranslation patch   
    It's been quite a ride but it's nice to see this patch FINALLY released. I've been following the project ever since I found out the true full ReTranslation was just getting started after seeing people disappointed with the original Restoration patch (though mostly with Ageha's route). I've always really wanted to read this VN ever since I first found out about it (shortly after finding /r/vns) since it seemed the type of VN that was made for me. Many times I considered just reading the original Restoration patch but now I'm really glad I waited.

    Being able to QC for a project like this was really fun, I enjoyed working with all the main members of the project team. Seeing them hiring for fan QC on Fuwanovel to seeing the invite to getting into the secret project chat were really exciting moments for me since Software QA is my full time position and I love visual novels so doing this for a VN I wanted to read made it a dream come true to be part of some sort of VN translation project.

    A reason why I'm glad I waited is I was able to have fun reading this VN for the first time while also finding bugs and other TL/grammar issues to point out and see fixed shortly after. Sure the flow of my reading was broken whenever I found an issue to write up but I just found it all the more fun. While I was initially assigned to only QC Ageha's route, I'm glad I was eventually assigned to QC the whole thing because it felt more right to do so since I could find issues potentially consistent among other routes and I would be even more anxious to read the rest of the VN after only reading the common and Ageha route.

    I learned a lot about how QC happens in TL scene and I'd honestly like to to be QC for some VN TL project in the future, fan or official. I feel like I should learn Japanese so I can be like a secondary editor when QCing in case I find a potential discrepancy in the text vs the voiced line. Konsora/IMHHW meeting my expectations as far as how much I liked the VN story/character wise was nice too.

    In any case, I hope you guys enjoy this up to date patch whether you get the one for Steam/MoeNovel or the one for the Japanese version (I'm really glad we took the time to test and make sure both versions work). Just expect a comfy feel-good charage with bits of drama/development and not much in the way of deep plot.

    EDIT: Due to Fuwa anti-piracy rules this thread's usefulness was quite limited, since we couldn't ask for any files that we needed for further compatibility testing and the like. I'd say even posting direct links to our patch here was questionable to begin with, since it's not that different from the abovementioned files that we were asking for.
    So in the end we decided to remove all links from here and move our main release thread to Reddit: LINK
    That's where all further updates will be posted, so make sure to follow us there. I'll ask mods to lock this thread, since MeruP won't be checking it anyway, so all feedback should be posted on Reddit instead (we also have a dedicated thread for reporting bugs and other issues).

    Amnesia: Memories

    Summary
    A story that takes place in a fictional world...
    It was the 1st of August.
    That morning, when she awoke, the heroine found herself without any memories from before August 1st...... Everything, from the sort of life she lived, to the relationships she had, was a blank......
    A young boy named Orion appeared in front of her, referring to himself as a "spirit." Under Orion's guidance, the heroine began the struggle to regain her memories. She searched her house for clues about her everyday life, and received a message on her phone...
    What was displayed on the screen was an unknown name to her.
    Now, she is asked to meet with him, a boyfriend whose name and face she doesn't know. In a position where who to trust is uncertain, the heroine must move in a way that her memory loss remains undetected by her partner. Because of this, the story becomes tangled in complex ways.
    With no memories of "him," our heroine will write a new love story starting today......
     
    Ending Guideline / Suggested Route Order
    There are 5 hero routes: Ikki, Kent, Shin, Touma, and Ukyo.
    To unlock Ukyo (Joker World), you need to get all other Hero's Good Ends first. Then start a completely new game.

    Adorabear reacted to Clephas in Are leading companies like Nitroplus and Typemoon affected by the decline in the JP VN industry?   
    As I understand it, Nitroplus and 5bp were partners but not merged companies.  Both of them worked on the Science series together until the most recent entry, which 5bp designed and produced separately from Nitroplus.  This is because 5bp partnered with Hobibox (the originator for Caramel Box) for the PC version's development this time around, instead of Nitroplus.  This is because 5bp doesn't have the means to effectively program/port games for/to pc, so they inevitably have no choice but to partner with other companies to produce PC versions.
    Oh... and 5bp was a no-name with pc-gamers when the series first started, so they used Nitroplus to get their product sold on PC, but that was just plain common sense strategic thinking...
    Edit: To Nitroplus, it was probably just a chance to add some extra cash from swag and partial profits from the sales of the PC versions...  I don't think anyone expected for 5bp to get so big when Chaos;Head came out... and now they are the primary porter of famous/infamous non-mainstream VNs to console, lol.
    Edit2: It should be noted that Nitroplus, while it produces high quality games that sell a lot over the course of several years, their initial sales almost always fall behind the mainstream.  The whole point is that their sales won't be hurt by the decay of mainstream VNs, since they don't bother with the mainstream in the first place.

    Type-moon has branched out so into so much other media that it would probably survive the complete collapse of the VN industry.
    Nitroplus has a lot of solid IPs that make them huge amounts of money from swag, as much as from the games themselves.  The likelihood of that company going down anytime soon is low.  Mainstream companies like Navel are far more likely to take a hit.
